And there or updates end. Nothing new really except Festa still around and McDermott doesn't know who this Italian players are. All eyes on the Football League now....!
13:35 - Has spoken to Festa once
13:34 - Ross McCormack has been superb - a real captain. Nearly came off after 30 minutes due to a pain in his head.
13:33 - What would he like to happen? Whatever is best for Leeds United. Would suggest it shouldn't happen to a football manager or other employees. LMA have only commented that BMc is in charge of the football.
13:31 - Gianluca Festa was at the training ground this morning. We have an Italian player but not sure if it has been ratified by Football league. Nigel Gibbs told BMc how much the fans had been singing on Saturday. Was disappointed he wasn't there on Saturday, doesn't hold grudges. Leeds fans showed absolute class on Saturday.
13:30 - Thought it was strange as you have to own a club to sack and manager or bring in new players. Focus now is on training today, training tomorrow and match next week
13:28 - McDermott spent Saturday watching Sky. Neil Redfearn advised him team had been changed. ANd it was changed back. Speaking to LMA who have been very good.
13:26 - Cannot comment on whether his sacking was legal. The assurances include that he will control all footballing matters and no one will be invited to training, dug out or dressing room. Assurances GFH are owners. Emphasising again that the club needs stability like he had at Reading.
13:24 - Long term plan hasn't changed. Wasn't angry on Friday night, all that mattered was the fans. He set team on Friday, it was changed on Friday night, it was changed back on Saturday. He was upset he lost his job. Cannot comment on whether he will be manager on Saturday.
13:23 - Hasn't considered the comments of Cellino, all that matters is the fans - it has just given everyone more drive - him, the staff and the players.
13:22 - GFH are owners, he has had assurances about the running of the football and team. Cannot speculate on who owners might be. Need calm and need a sense of direction. it has been going in right direction since he came here.
13:20 - Didn't expect to be back, advised not to go back, but he is Leeds United Manager and wants to be Leeds United manager. Saying if you saw players, fans, staff, they have been brilliant.
Its been difficult for everyone but performance on Saturday was brilliant. Praise for McCormack and Gibbs.
13:19 - Here we go - Brian McDermott starts with a quick joke to Bryn Law saying he didn't expect to see him. He explains he got a phone call from Chris Farnell to say he had been relieved of his duties and a letter on way to him. a further call on Saturday from GFH to reverse the decision.
13:18 - Still waiting for coverage to start...
13:13 - A few minutes to the start...the tactics board in the background shows a referee marking their keeper. Maybe it's an Italian thing!
13:10 - Five minutes to go. If this is just an update about the driving an F1 car thingy, I may explode!!
13:05 - We are waiting for the press conference to start. As we wait, the latest news is that Cellino is awaiting Football League approval to takeover the club, as the Flowers/Farnan consortiums discuss a joint bid, believed to match the the Cellino offer. A mysterious third party is also understood to have entered the frame...
